Even a Developer Can Love a Landmark
Rarely do the owners of old buildings converted to residential condominiums request inclusion in a historic district after they have adapted the facade, but the developers of the Park Union in Brooklyn’s Park Slope neighborhood are doing just that.
The Park Union developer not only restored the building but also added an intriguing detail: bronze medallions depicting the Soldiers’ and Sailors’ Arch in Grand Army Plaza. Perry Finkelman, a partner and managing director of the American Development Group, said that when he first set eyes upon the Beaux Arts-style building at 910 Union Street, which was built as an Elks Lodge in 1914, he recognized its historic potential.

New Slope Condo, 910 Union, Almost Ready for Prime Time
The newest condo in Park Slope, 910 Union Street—between 8th Avenue and Grand Army Plaza—is expected to hit the market by the end of May, according to one of its developers. Brian Lockner, of American Development Group, says construction is close to wrapping and that the building will have 15 units: Two one-bedrooms, two two-bedrooms and 11 three-bedrooms. Lockner says the units will have high-end finishes, private outdoor space in each, and an elevator that opens directly into all the spreads aside from the ones on the first two floors. Lockner wouldn’t talk prices with us because the offering plan has yet to be approved, but we’re hearing from the brokerage community that the building may be aiming to set some Park Slope condo records, with prices running between $1.6 and $2 million. Clearly the family market is being targeted given how many three-bedrooms are being built. The shrouding covering the development makes it tough to determine how it’s going to turn out, but Lockner says a final exterior rendering has yet to be finalized and that the old one we have is out of date.
